An all-time favourite of the rich and famous, the Mount Nelson Hotel is a notable hallmark of luxury and indulgence in Cape Town. The world-renowned Afternoon Tea buffet is set in the elegant lounge with its deep veranda overlooking the manicured garden.
The afternoon ritual of high tea was typically an elite social gathering, generally for ladies - served in the mid-afternoon and tea usually included dainty foods like petit-fours and macaroons.
The Mount Nelson, one of Cape Town's oldest and most esteemed 5-star hotels in South Africa, has both old-world charm and modern flourish. It is probably the most iconic venue in the Cape for high tea or afternoon tea as it is also called.
It sounds opulent and decadent but it is easily accessible, approachable and family friendly and a fantastic option for birthdays, anniversaries or any special occasion.
Enjoy the sumptuous selection of chocolate eclairs and petit-fours, mini cakes and classic carrot, chocolate and cheese cakes, savoury sandwiches and empanadas, scones and succulent fresh fruits.
There are over thirty loose leaf teas to try, many exotic teas to impress the most avid tea connoisseur - the tea is in itself and experience with everything from Rooibos and Lapsang Souchong, to Earl Grey and Darjeeling. Their signature blend is made from 6 teas & rose petals from their garden: Darjeeling, Kenya, Assam, Keemun, Yunnan and Ceylon Teas.
Arrive hungry and don't make big dinner plans!
Depending on the weather you may take tea in the Tea Lounge on the Terrace, or around the garden fountain. Graceful notes from the Grand Piano add to the gracious ambiance.
